To give a new expression and a different meaning to the crystal industrial technology: Reflex was born more than twenty years ago with this ambitious aim.

About Us

Through precious lessons deriving from the tradition of the family glassworks established in the 40s, the industrial glass, so charming with its linear essentiality, is enriched and warmed by shapes and colours that, although they are topical, always refer to the inexhaustible heritage of the Venetian handicraft, with intelligence and creativity, giving life to a product unique of its kind.

This company, the first one that used the Murano massive glass as a base for its tables, has always been privileging the use of high-quality materials, such as glass, marble, forged iron and wood, applying new contrasts and technological processes on the cutting edge, with a craft mastery. The results are furnishings that express the perfect synthesis of technology, design, research and tradition.

Reflex collaborates with famous architects, both Italian and foreign. The most well-known are: Pininfarina, Sacha Lakic, Maurice Barilone, Andrée Putman, Arnaldo Gamba, Leila Guerra and Marco Piva.

Reflex products can be admired in the historical head office in Biancade.

The magnificent showroom located in the province of Treviso welcomes the guest in its spectacular glass structure of the bow window realized using technologies coming from the naval industry. The entire structure is characterized by extraordinary lightness and brightness, distinguishing elements which refer to the products conceived and produced in it.

THE MURANO GLASS AND THE GLASS MASTERS

On Murano island, thanks to the ability of the Masters, real glass art masterpieces are created. For over a thousand years, a tradition with its ancient secrets, handed down from generation to generation and that is not taught in any school. A Heritage of our Country to promote and defend.

At the silica (sand) is added the soda, that allows the fusion with lower temperatures. Moreover, the glass solidify more slowly. As dyestuffs, the metallic oxides are often used: copper for green and blue colours, cobalt for light-blue, manganese for amethyst and purple, fine gold for the ruby red. The reverberation oven smelts the raw materials with a temperature of about 1400° C. The vitreous paste remains ductile and mouldable till 500° C.

The main high level working techniques there is the “Blown Glass”: a clot of incandescent glass is took by using an iron blowing rod. Another ageold technique is “Murrina”: it consists in fusing monochrome or polychrome section of vitreous stick on the base of a specific drawing, to obtain a colourful vitreous tissue. At the end, the typical Murano manufacture process is the “Solid Glass”, this process consists in sculpting the hot vitreous mass to obtain specific figures. The technical difficulties due to the big weight of the incandescent glass are considerable and that’s why today, the rare and appreciated Murano’s glass Masters, maintain high the level of the secular fame of this Art unique in the world. .

TAILORING AND CABINET MAKIN

We design and produce with big attention to the materials, the design and to the customizing requests (different aesthetic and special dimensions) received from our customers. Our company is comparable to a tailor’s shop, where the customer can choose between various finishes and woods.

Contemporaneous and sartorial: a perfect binomial. High Italian craftsmanship, with quality of thought, feeling for the contemporary design, a maniacal attention to the detail and a manual ability typical of the most wanted “cabinet making”. A mixture that the company has been able to translate into new contemporary interpretations.

Utilization of 100% recyclable materials like the glass, the steel and the wood, water-based lacquering and natural oils finishes, testify also the Reflex attention to the environment.

About environment, thanks to the new technologies, Reflex has been able to make the glass flexible and from here, they develop a new generation of ultrathin mirrors for reflective parabolic panels employed into the solar Power systems. This technology, developed in cooperation with Enel and Enea, has led us in 2009 to realize the solar field of the CSP system in Priolo Gargallo in Sicily.

Specific glass technologies: cut, grinding, milling, silvering, bending, that joint to the highest level of technologic precision in the steel working, in order to make granted and patented mechanisms, realized with new steel qualities in order to offer high performances, in terms of mechanical strength and corrosion resistance.

Research of exclusively certified and highest quality raw materials also in the field of the wood, has enriched the Reflex collections, ensuring an increasing depth of range, and renovated charm. The innovations that have taken place in the latest years don’t concern only the design and the project, but also features linked to the types of process that allow to treat the raw materials in an usual way and to give some technic, esthetic and functional results, very effective, as per Reflex style.

The choice between several tops and finishes, as well as different types of bases and dimensions that can be mixed together, allows the product to be completely customized.

The glass can be float transparent or extra-clear, smoked, frosted or sandblasted; lacquered or etched lacquered with water-based products that are environmentally friendly.

Moreover there is also available the special finish in carbon fibers. Also the wooden range is various and exclusive as for the glass: “Radix” tops with a big thickness (40 mm) and irregular solid edges, available in Canaletto walnut, wenge and Ebony.

RADIX

Between the different tops that Reflex proposes, one of the most particular and versatile, as well as reassuring for the typical wooden esthetic warmth, is the RADIX. It is a top with a big thickness (40 mm) and irregular solid edges in Canaletto walnut. It is available also in wenge finish and in Ebony wood, in shiny or matt finish. The most important characteristics of this new top collection are the very little grains and the naturalness and warmth of the surfaces, the “water painting” and the finish with natural oils, that guarantee zero emissions of carcinogenic solvent s and a product 100% recyclable. Moreover, the natural oil finish allows the complete “regeneration of the top”, thanks to the possibility of renewing the smoothing and the finish, ensuring a surface of great reliability and duration.

BEVEL WOOD

CANALETTO WALNUT / ANTIQUE BRASS / COPPER
The range of wooden tops of Reflex has been enlarged with the new BEVEL WOOD: top in wood, 40mm thick, with tampered edges. This top is characterized by soft edges and it is available in various dimensions and shapes for our tables collections. Moreover, the big variety of finishes available (Canaletto walnut, Ebony wood, copper or antiqued brass) allows to play with the combination and to create new chromatic contrasts.

GLASS

In the common language the word Glass refers to the glasses made mainly from silicon oxides (silicon glasses) used mainly as construction material or in the manufacture of decorative elements, as complements and lighting. The most of the utilization of the glass derive from its transparency to the visible glass, from its chemical non-alterability and its versatility. There are different types of glass, the flat glass, where we are specialists, it ranges from the float glass (the 90% of the worldwide flat glass is called “float”, for its production with flotation system), available in different thickness from the 2mm to the 24mm and offered also in the extra-clear glass version, smoked, frosted, sandblasted and bush-hammered. There are also different working of the flat glass: cut, grinding, milling, laminating, puncturing and tempering. The most deliciously feature is linked to the rays of light: the glass lives and it expresses itself thanks to the light! Always unique and different is a matchless and highest aesthetics material, a multifaceted material as per a precious diamond!
